Elevation Worship & Maverick City Music take the top 2 spots on the Billboard Charts
Congratulations go out to Elevation Worship & Maverick City Music who have taken the top 2 spots on the Billboard gospel Charts. “Talking To Jesus” featuring Brandon Lake (Number one) and 'Jireh" which we believe was last weeks number one fell one place to 2 as it was replaced by their new single. This is good news as their collaborative album Old Church Basement is out very soon. “Talking To Jesus” was co-written by Steven Furtick, Chris Brown, and Brandon Lake.

Wlevation Worship is the worship ministry of Elevation Church, a multisite church based in Charlotte, N.C. led by Pastor Steven Furtick. Elevation Worship has produced 12 albums that include American Christian radio no. 1 song “Graves Into Gardens”, the RIAA Gold Certified song “The Blessing”, RIAA Platinum Certified and American Christian radio Top 5 song “O Come to The Altar” and the RIAA Gold Certified song “Do It Again.” The group currently has ten songs in the CCLI Top 100 list. This ministry is passionate about producing songs for the local church that connect others to God. Their main priority is to create an atmosphere of worship so people can encounter Jesus in a real and personal way.
Maverick City started with a dream to make space for folk that would otherwise live in their own separate worlds. To break the unspoken rules that exist in the CCM and Gospel World! But I think more importantly to be a mega phone for a community of creatives that have been pushed to the margins of the industry of Church Music. What brings us together, and that sound that is vivaciously smacking you in the face the first time you hit play on on a Maverick track. Isn’t the sound of a community that centered around their deprivation, it’s the audacious sound of true belonging: The beautiful harmony of long lost family.
The newest album Old Church Basement, a live album collaboration, releases April 30, 2021.
